A personal and unique documentary about cult filmmaker Leos Carax.

By means of exclusive archival materials, interviews with his closest collaborators (such as Denis Lavant), and excerpts from his favorite films, this documentary directed by Tessa Louise- Salomé attempts to put together a few pieces of the Carax puzzle. What emerges is an immersive and dreamlike portrait inspired by his singular artistic vision. Sit back and let yourself drift into the world of this unparalleled visual poet…

France, Leos Carax has long been branded as a mysterious, solitary filmmaker with an aversion to both the media and the public at large. Yet outside of his home country, his work takes precedence over this public image, and he is recognized as an icon of world cinema. Mr X tackles this complex artist—a cult figure from his first feature—by plunging the spectator into the poetic and visionary world of his films.
